Forecasts

Darkest Day (11/4), Mi Laddo (4/1), Blood Eagle (9/2), Nye Bevan (11/2), Good Bye (13/2), Devious Dicks Dame (15/2), Officer Drivel (12/1), Mawlood (12/1), Scrutinise (14/1), Jewelinthename (33/1), Sing Out Loud (33/1), Prince Percy (50/1)

Verdict

Though still a maiden, DARKEST DAY has done the majority of his racing over hurdles on slower ground than he's likely to encounter this time and he is appealing on the back of a very solid effort in a jumpers bumper at Lingfield. The addition of a visor may also be to his benefit. Mi Laddo has been in good heart on the Flat in recent months and is second choice ahead of Devious Dicks Dame.

  1. DARKEST DAY (IRE)
  2. MI LADDO (IRE)
  3. DEVIOUS DICKS DAME
